I personally wouldn't object to having that in include/verify.h (not
to be installed). I think the macro's name is a bit poor, though.
And we really don't need a hairy one with a page of justification
about its hair. In libc, we can keep ourselves to only ever using
it in the simple top-level case where the trivial one-line
definition that time/mktime.c uses is completely adequate.
But since it is just that one simple line that's really needed, then
perhaps Ulrich doesn't think it warrants consolidating all two cases
into a common macro.
